  • It was a unique opportunity, I was invited by friends i don't know the paintings and I know nothing about art, but it's an experience that I recommend to everyone at any price, there are paintings and pictures I had only seen in books and not being expert did not imagine you can see live, so much history and so much astonishment when crossing the arno from Ponte Vecchio , and discover unimaginable angles. Not to be missed.

  • The Vasari corridor is beautiful, something that takes your breath away throughout its historical weight, for what it represents. Hard to visit, often is closed and when open you have to book well in advance. The groups are few and small. Prices are not cheap but worth it.

  • Would be a wonderful view of the crud sellers would let you get next to the wall. They will bug you, block the view and push junk on everyone. Beware: a lot of the junk sellers are just there to scope out possible targets for pickpocketing.
  • Beautiful gallery and eye catching outside scenery
  • A really special experience in Florence, exploring this 'secret passage' above the heads of the unknowing public below! Has to be done on a pre-booked tour
  • This corridor is unique architectural complex with next bridg
  • You will see the power of the money in medieval.
